My partner, Brodie, and I have always been animal lovers. Throughout our lives, we have developed our skills working with animals of all shapes and sizes.
I first moved to Australia as an international student to study Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Adelaide. Desperately missing having an animal around, as soon as I could I bought a pet rat and moved into a share house with a little Jack Russell Terrier also named Lily. I have spent time volunteering in a veterinary clinic and am comfortable dealing with any medical problems that our beloved pets may develop. I have also spent a great deal of time volunteering at zoos and working with various reptiles, insects, and small mammals. For me, nothing beats a walk or trip to the park with a dog.
Being animal crazy runs in my genes. My mother worked as a veterinary technician and later as a great ape keeper at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado, USA. I have spent a total of 6 months of my entire childhood without a dog or cat waiting at home. As I got older, I began developing interests in pets beyond your standard dogs and cats. As soon as I could walk, I wanted to be a horse rider. While in high school, I rode competitively for my schools teams and qualified for Nationals two years in a row. Despite the excitment that accompanies winning in the ring, I realized that I actually prefer stable management and horsemanship. As an international student, I am unable to ride while in Australia, but whenever I return home, I help my coach train and exercise horses. In high school I began bird watching and have since further developed my passion for birds.
Brodie’s household has never been without a pet. Nothing puts a bigger smile on his face than getting to stop and greet a dog on the street, or making friends with a neighbourhood cat. As a competitive athlete, Brodie’s energy and exuberance can tired even the most rambunctious of pups! Together, we can provide any service to your fury/scales/hairy friend!
Lily was not only fantastic with her communication but was absolutely amazing with my puppy! Her and her partner came to my home during the day to play with, feed, and watch over my puppy. They even helped train him some tricks. I will definitely be booking with Lily again! :)
